While you may never need a Vinings personal injury attorney, millions of people suffer devastating injuries and wrongful death annually. These injuries and wrongful deaths frequently are caused by many forms of negligent conduct or intentional criminal acts. Some of these incidents include construction accidents, trucking accidents, auto accidents, trip and fall accidents, sexual assaults, medical malpractice, motorcycle accidents, violent attacks, defective product accidents and many more. The area of law that covers injuries suffered because of the wrongful act of another is called “tort law.” Tort law refers to the body of law that compensates those who suffer injury or fatalities because of the intentional, reckless, or negligent acts of third parties. Our Vinings personal injury law firm has been representing victims of careless, reckless, and intentional misconduct since our firm was founded in 1984.
When you or your loved one is injured in a motor vehicle crash or any other serious accident, the injuries suffered may disrupt every facet of your life, including your ability to work, family relationships, future career, and other aspects of your life. While any licensed attorney is permitted to provide legal representation in a personal injury case, this does not mean that all attorneys are equally qualified to handle complex personal injury negotiations and litigation. At Montlick and Associates, our law practice is built around personal injury cases so our law firm is equipped with the personal injury-related relationships with experts, extensive litigation resources, and experience that a general practice firm cannot provide. While our personal injury legal team represents clients in all types of personal injury cases, some of the cases that we handle include:
Vinings Car Accident (Motor Vehicle Collisions): Whether you suffer whiplash in a rear-ender or severe injury in a trucking accident, you must overcome physical, emotional and financial challenges. Many auto accident victims presume that only collisions that cause significant body damage to their vehicle can cause significant injury or wrongful death. It is frequently the case that rear end collisions at low rates of speed cause debilitating injuries that result in prolonged disability from employment and enormous medical expenses. Our Vinings personal injury attorneys provide legal representation in the full range of motor vehicle accidents, including head-on collisions, side impact crashes, tractor-trailer accidents, distracted driving accidents, rollover accidents, T-bone accidents, DUI accidents, and other accidents.
Vinings Dog Attacks (Dog Bite Legal Claims): When dog owners fail to take adequate precautions to control their dog, children may be seriously mauled and others may suffer severe dog bite injuries. Because dog owners are in a unique position to know if their dog has a propensity to attack or otherwise engage in vicious conduct, the law imposes a duty on dog owner’s to protect others from a dog with vicious propensities. Even if the dog owner does not have reason to know that a dog is vicious, the owner may still be subject to civil liability for the owner’s negligence or violation of dog leash laws. Our experienced Vinings dog attack lawyers offer a free consultation so that we can assess available legal theories that may justify imposing liability on a dog owner.
Vinings Wrongful Death Actions: Many people engage in negligent or intentional misconduct that results in fatalities, the consequences for the family left behind can be overwhelming. While loved ones are dealing with the emotional hardships caused by losing someone they love, the stress of also coping with the sudden loss of household income can greatly compound the stress and uncertainty faced by a family. Our experienced Vinings wrongful death attorneys work diligently when seeking compensation for the estate and families of wrongful death victims. We know that the loss of a breadwinner can jeopardize the ability of surviving family members to make mortgage payments, cover high education costs, and provide for other financial necessities.
Vinings Workers' Compensation: An excavator accident on a construction site can result in horrific injuries that result in staggering medical expenses and prolonged periods without income. Virtually all businesses in Vinings and elsewhere throughout Georgia are required to either obtain workers' compensation coverage from a workers' compensation insurance company or self-insure. This insurance coverage is designed to provide specific benefits to those who suffer an injury on-the-job or an occupational illness. The concept of an on-the-job injury is construed broadly to include tasks outside business hours and away from your workplace that are in the “scope of employment.” This essentially means that the task benefits your employer even if your employer did not specifically request that you complete the task. Our experienced Vinings workers' compensation attorneys seek medical care, reimbursement for lost wages, and disability compensation based on rating your percentage of disability. If your injury was caused by the fault of a third party, we also may be able to pursue a claim for personal injury against the third party tortfeasor.
Vinings Slip and Fall Accidents (Premises Liability Claims): Most people misunderstand slip and fall accidents and presume that they are relatively minor incidents that rarely result in serious injury. This misconception is carefully promoted by the insurance industry, which cultivates an image of slip and fall victims as malingerers and liars. The reality is that slip and fall accidents cause 17,000 fatalities annually. Slip and falls also account for almost half of all fatal falls involving seniors. Liability in slip and fall accidents is based on premises liability law, which delineates the legal duty of property owners to keep their premises free of hazards or warn visitors about hazards that are not open and obvious. Other types of premises liability cases that our Vinings slip and fall attorneys handle include construction site accidents, drowning accidents, machinery accidents and more.
Vinings Medical Malpractice Claims: When you seek medical treatment from your general practitioner or a specialist, you presume that the health care professional will provide medical care consistent with the physician’s degree of expertise, training and education. Medical professionals have a legal duty to exercise reasonable care, not to make errors and omissions, and conform to the standard of a doctor with a similar background in the same geographic area. Medical malpractice insurance carriers zealously defend medical malpractice cases so it is important to put the experienced Vinings medical malpractice attorneys of Montlick and Associates on your side.
